Schools' solar panels aim to save £400,000 in 25 years
Five more Torbay schools are now helping the environment by generating their own electricity

Work installing solar panels is due to be completed this month.

It is expected they will save £400,000 in total, over 25 years, at Churston Ferrers Grammar Academy, Mayfield School, Paignton Community and Sports College, Sherwell Valley Primary School and Shiphay Learning Academy.

The panels have been supplied free to the schools through the Eco-Schools solar programme.

Educational packs and electronic display panels in school receptions are part of the scheme.

Cllr Dave Thomas said: "Schools play a major part in helping Torbay become more environmentally friendly £ not just by using renewable energy, but also by educating pupils about this important issue, so they can pass the message on to their parents and carers."

Torbay Council is now working towards reducing carbon emissions in the Bay by 34 per cent by 2020 £ a target set in the 2008 Climate Change Act and adopted by the council the same year.
